In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, South Africans are going through a 21-day lockdown.
The lockdown means that a sweeping travel and social gathering restrictions were rolled out across the country.
The transportation of alcohol is prohibited, as is the sale of alcoholic beverages under lockdown regulations.
The police fined drivers, arrested six employees including three truck drivers.
SAB in a statement on Thursday, said it had permits to move the alcohol and since shared the permits with the police.
